WHAT WE ACCEPT


ASK THE 3 C’s

Before you enter your items, ask yourself the 3 C’s: Is it cute? Is it clean? Is it current? If you are questioning any of those answers, save it for your garage sale. Please bring only your best. We want this shopping experience to feel more like an eclectic boutique than a thrift store. We accept gently used items in current styles and excellent condition free of stains, smells, and tears. We will be accepting all seasons of clothing at our fall sale. We have also added a vintage rack for items in excellent condition from the 90’s and earlier. Listed below are items we accept for each of the unique boutiques within My Sister’s House.
